General Storage Auction Talk / Re: There are is couple that buys units

From the research I have done noe of the compensation information has ever been released.  I pissed off my wife last year when I told her the stars from 16 and pregnant were making 60k per season.  Irrelevant I know but still funny.  Then I told her that by watching it SHE was helping to pay them.....

Why do oil companies continue to raise their prices and push oil based products on us? Why do billionaires continue to do what they do to make more money?
Exactly.  The rich will continue to do what made them rich and the poor will continue to do what it is that keeps them poor.

I was looking in the legal listings today and found a good bit of storage auctions in the Duluth/Lawrenceville area, which is perfect because this is where i am located.

Chef, have you been to any auctions in this area yet? how have the crowds and prices been if you have.
Daily.  crowds are high, regulars have money to spend, and prices are high.  The legacy auctions were cancelled this month so check out there website so that you don't go and waste your time.  The only time I get a break from big crowds is when there are auctions in Alpharetta/Milton and north of there.  Good luck.

Unfortunately people in Gwinnett can afford to pay for their lockers, when they do come up there usually a solid buy.  Its Dekalb, Rockdale, Fulton, and Clayton counties that have plenty of auctions.  The poorer the town the more auctions there are.  Thats how I have found it anyway.

Stories about Storage Auctions / Saturday auction failure
« on: November 05, 2011, 02:37:27 PM »
Went to an auction this morning.   The public notice was quite detailed to say the least.  That should have been my first impression of just staying home, but I went anyway.  First locker went kinda high the second was the bets buy of the day at 150 dollars.  After that it was all staged.  Barbie dolls up front and clean in their boxes, that were banged up.  3 yes, 3 lockers with visible safes.  There were only 7 lockers for sale and only 5 of the 7 were in the notice....  Quite the sketch joint in my eyes, some lady was dropping 600-800 dollars on lockers that I wouldn't go over 250 on.  Hopefully it will shut them down on future runs.

I just reupholstered and painted a vintage armless drafting stool.  This is made of some serious stainless steel, and I could tell it was of great quality.  Manufaturer is "reliable" out of Omaha, but I don't think they are making chairs there any longer.  Its probably from the 50's or 60's and is quite a nice piece.  I may just keep it.  Pictures will be coming soon.
I feel that if you want to spend some time to fix something up, go for it.

I don't think you can register for his site unless you pay dollars.  I wouldn't pay upwards of 50 bucks to antagonize someones work.  Unfortunately here we all have to deal with it.

You're better off using since they're geared for book sales. They are also an offshoot of eBay so your eBay account helps you out.
Listed 46 books on 38 days ago.  Listed them at the lowest price on the site and still haven't sold ONE.
Not much exposure on that site. 

I've spent quite a few hours watching the videos.  It certainly helps that I am running around in the same territory that he was in when he was still buying.  The flea markets and storage facilities are the same that I am still traveling to when I have time.  I have heard that he likes to lead you through one book to entice you into purchasing the next, which in my opinion is a good marketing strategy.
I am sure he had to compete with sterling and wes and some of the other "whales" that I have to deal with all ofthe time.
Either way the videos are great because they are free.  I personally don't think I would purchase a product, although 6 months ago I had considered it.

Why are people getting so up tight about this.   I'm happy he stopped by.

P.S. Glendon, you articulate yourself much better in your videos.

Thanks for the clarification. Sounds like a whale is the storage auction version of an a**hole!
A "whale" is generally someone who has been in the business long before the storage auction shows popped up on tv and destroyed the market.
They have huge buying power and a lot of know-how.  They can buy 5 large lockers and have them cleaned out in 24 hours, and be back the next day and purchase 5 more.
I wouldn't quantify them as an ass hole just because they have a family to support and a business to run.

If the category is media related, books cd's dvd's etc.  Ebay will cap it at $4.00.  You can change the category and keep the keywords and charge whatever you would like for shipping.

Thought a law passed that all infant furiture had to be inspected for re-sale due to safety issues? Any one selling infant furniture without inspection is held liable for any acciendient to an infant. I could be wrong
Its possible.  Any time the government can grow itself and create some additional govt. jobs/beaurocrats it will.
